Thursday
A New French Bistro Has Arrived. Oui.
FRENCH REVOLUTION

A New French Bistro Has Arrived. Oui.

The French have a way with words. For example, “Tu as de très beaux yeux.” (You have beautiful eyes.) Also: “Free Panther coffee and pastries.” (Free Panther coffee and pastries.) Which is what Brickell Key’s new French bistro has waiting for you in celebration of their grand opening. Two words: Rosetta Stone.

Now open; gratis coffee and pastries through Sep 13, 7-11am; The Island Bistro, 605 Brickell Key Dr, 305-364-5512

NIC OF TIME

It’s a Hidden Pizza Spot at a Marina

Over in Aventura, there’s a new pizza spot. But you’ll have to use all of your senses to find it: sight, sound, smell, Google Maps. Awaiting you: blistering Neapolitan flour pies topped with gorgonzola and Spanish chorizo, right by the water. Leave a pepperoni trail for next time.

Sunday
Bocce and Mezcal. It All Makes Sense.
MEZCAL OF DUTY

Bocce and Mezcal. It All Makes Sense.

The Social Club’s throwing a Mexican Independence Day celebration with a frozen-mezcal-cocktail competition featuring mustache-sporting bartenders. Good news: you’re judging. So you’ll drink, vote and watch as the winner shaves the loser’s head. Afterward, there’ll be bocce and ping-pong. Naturally.

Monday
Monday Night Football at Rec Room
ROOM SERVICE

Monday Night Football at Rec Room

Monday Night Football. Sure, you could watch it at home. But you could also do the honors at Rec Room. See, they’ve decided to screen the game and serve up sliders, wings and beer specials alongside vintage football video games that you can play during halftime. Or, you know, whenever.

Mondays, 6:30pm, Rec Room at the Gale, 1690 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-673-0199

Wednesday
Wynwood Gets a Drive-In
PUT IT IN PARK

Wynwood Gets a Drive-In

Once upon a time, you had to trek to Broward for a glimpse of a drive-in. Well, you can finally put that all behind you. Blue Starlite’s opening up in Wynwood. Just park your car, or walk up and have a seat near the concession stand. Strategy, friends.
